Realizing the released video was just a dog whistle but a raging blaring alarm the DNC has tried “attack Romney” for the LIEs OBAMA ahs told. It pretty much torches the narrative that Obamam didn’t know Rev Wright, the foul mouthed G*D America preacher, and Obama actually shares his views…
The Democratic National Committee — armed with the help of dismissive tweets from a variety of journalists — scrambled Tuesday night to attack The Daily Caller for its videos of President Obama’s controversial race comments in 2007 before the story was even published.
Using comments from reporters speculating on TheDC’s report, the Democrats quickly worked to dismiss the story it hadn’t seen yet — which was teased Tuesday afternoon on Sean Hannity’s radio show and on the Drudge Report — by calling it “lame.”
At about 7:30 p.m. ET, the DNC Rapid Response team sent an email to reporters titled “That was Lame,” listing “instant reaction to the latest lame Drudge/Hannity desperation tactics.”
The email merely included tweets from journalists — before the story was published — expressing skepticism and disinterest and the mistaken claim that the video had been published before.
The tweets used by the Democratic National Committee came from reporters at organizations including Politico, BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, New York Magazine and the Atlantic.
The mere prospect that videos of Obama talking about race and his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, would be published had the committee quickly working to kill the story.
In an attempt to link the story to Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the DNC also sent out an old story about Romney saying he would not make Wright a campaign issue.
And why shouldn’t Rev Wright the Obama preacher of over 20 years be a campaign issue?
